Q: I'm hoping your readers can help me think of a gift idea for my brother. He is a stay-at-home father of twin boys (ages 2 1/2). With winter approaching here in Chicago, I know he is getting anxious about finding interesting activities for himself and the boys once the weather becomes too cold/snowy for park visits. I was hoping to get him a Christmas gift that would provide him with an outlet regardless of the weather. So far I've though of museum memberships, but I'd like something a little more general that can be used in more than one location. My price cap is about $100. Any help is appreciated!
Sent by DaisyEditor: What a thoughtful gift giver you are! I have just one son that age and can relate to his growing anxiety about this winter. Readers, from Chicago or elsewhere, what ideas can you share with Daisy?
